My Students

As a proud alumna of this flagship school in our community, I know first hand the legacy of academic excellence and athletic ability. This is a large urban high school and my students come from every walk of life. They are diverse in interests, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, and religion.

My students are driven to achieve academic success in my classroom and beyond.

I hope to obtain the resources to provide them with the best second language course to met that objective. Go Pirates!

My Project

I have not yet met my amazing students, but I am super excited to offer them an engaging and comfortable space to foster their love of reading in a new language. I am relocating to a new classroom and I want to make the new space inviting. Having a previously carpeted space, I want a comfortable space for my students in our new classroom that includes a shag rug and throw pillows. The lounge space will be peaceful and offer seating choices to encourage their literary achievement. Choral reading and phonetic modeling are strategies I enjoy with students and sitting amongst them in the lounge or in front of the class via the office chair will make that much easier. Students can even enjoy the chair when they role play as the teacher, another great instructional strategy. In addition to this space, the students will have new Spanish readers to enjoy! The selected three novels have new characters and plots to expose the students to new vocabulary. The more you know, the more you grow! Finally, the post-it notes will allow for organized, creative student output from the lounge. The post-its will also benefit the students as they provide a flexible surface for text analysis, especially through our use of close reads and text dependent questions.
